of a programming language designed to be readable by humans. * A program in its
original form as written by the programmer, not executable by the computer, you
must become machine language by compilers, assemblers or interpreters. [Http://e]

GNU / Linux
1984 - 1990: Richard Stallman and many volunteers are trying to create a free op
erating system with a performance similar to the UNIX (GNU). 1990: GNU lists had
many important tools such as compilers, debuggers, shells etc, except for the c
entral component: the core. 1991: Linux was created by Linus Torvalds in 1991 (a
